Pakistan News 0 Comment 1

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has decided that it would strongly respond to all ‘exaggerated’ human rights violation cases which have been reported at the international level to defame Pakistan and sabotage its developing economy.

Parliamentary Secretary for Human Rights MNA Dr Nisar Jatt, while speaking to The Express Tribune, said: “There are various enemies of the country who are making all-out efforts to tarnish the country’s image by misreporting the human rights violation cases at international level.”

Jatt said that the issue was also discussed in recent meeting held with the Federal Minister for Human Rights Mumtaz Ahmed Tarar and State Minister for Law and Justice Barrister Usman Ibrahim. He said during the meeting it was decided that it was high time for Pakistan to actively play its role in improving its image at the international level.

Human rights violations: Pakistan attempts to counter negative image

Parliamentary secretary said that currently some officials of the human rights ministry are abroad on an official visit and once they return a proper framework will be developed after consulting with stakeholders, related ministries and departments.

While answering to a question Jatt said, “Currently some of our neighboring counties such as India, who is against China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), cannot see Pakistan growing economically and is working to defame Pakistan.”

It is a fact that human rights violations also take place in some of our neighboring countries but their cases are normally suppressed at the international level, remarked the lawmaker.

“In the past we have seen how a minor case of human rights violation was misreported at the international level and the way Pakistan was defamed in providing no security to minorities in the country,” Jatt deplored.

He said that it is a fact that compared to previous years, the human rights situation is improving in Pakistan, “and this needs to be told to the world.”
